Yobo allays injury fears

Joseph Yobo

With eyes primed at Brazil 2014, Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo has described as minor the calf injury that prevented him from featuring for Norwich City in their 3-0 loss to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

The Nigeria international has stood out at the Canaries defence since his loan switch from Turkish side, Fenerbahce in January. His fans believe that his absence was felt at the Liberty stadium on Saturday.

“There is nothing to worry about. The calf injury is minor and I should be okay for the visit of Westbromich Albion this weekend,” Yobo said.

The former Everton man believes Norwich will bounce back at home when Victor Anichebe and his fellow Albions visit.  Norwich have had to rely on their home form in the battle against relegation and the Nigeria international who has been instrumental to two of the four clean sheets the club has recorded this season including the one against Manchester City in his debut game explains why they have been solid at Carrow Road.

“I can’t really tell you what the difference is other than at home you have the fans and your families behind you. Also when you are in the situation Norwich are, fighting to move higher up the table. Probably when we lose away from home we know we have to respond at home.”
